Police Blotter: 05 June 2013

Ants in pants elicits no laughs, much stabbing
A practical joke turned seriously sour on Sunday in Pursat when the prankster was stabbed by his friend. Police said a group of buddies were drinking while on holiday in Krakor district, when the victim put some red ants down his mate’s shirt for a laugh. The friend, 17, evidently didn’t appreciate the humour and flew into a rage, pulling out a knife and stabbing his friend in the stomach, arm and back, before attempting to escape on a motorbike. Police caught him and have packed him off to court. Nokorwat

Two-fisted drinker slugs his way into slammer
A 26-year-old pub brawler was arrested Monday, while his two friends got away, after the trio threw down with two other drinkers. According to police, the construction workers were knocking back Angkors in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district when stern words were exchanged. Things quickly escalated, with a wooden pole making an appearance as a weapon. Police soon arrived to arrest one man, while the other two assailants remain at large. kampuchea thmey
 
Would-be hit-and-run artist blames victims
Two schoolchildren were seriously injured after a car collided with them in Battambang on Monday. The siblings, aged 10 and 14, were riding a scooter to school when a speeding car crashed into them from behind, leaving the children with serious injuries. The reckless driver, instead of stopping to help, sped up to escape from the scene. Luckily, police managed to pull over the car, finding a male driver, 26, who blamed the accident on the kids. kampuchea thmey

Cop raid ups ante for small-time gamblers
Pailin town police apprehended a threesome of female card sharks on Sunday after getting a tip-off from a motodop. Though villagers had been gathering for months in the gambling den, the police raid only managed to net the three women, aged 32, 36 and 45. The women confessed afterwards, saying they had only bet small money. The police, however, said the size of the bets was irrelevant, as gambling remained a social menace. Nokorwat

Cops cop to causing crash – in line of duty
Even police have accidents, a group of officers in the capital’s Chamkarmon district claimed yesterday after they hit a woman’s motorbike, leaving her with critical injuries. An eyewitness said the woman and her friends were riding without a licence plate when officers tried to stop them, to no avail. The police gave chase and hit the woman’s wheel from behind, leaving her with injuries to the arms and legs. The police said it was an accident and blamed the victim, who they said had violated traffic laws. Rasmey kampuchea
